A woman says she was “electrocuted” at a Universal Orlando park last summer. Now she’s suing for thousands of dollars…but the theme park says she’s to blame.
In a recent report by local Florida news station Spectrum News 13, an Orlando woman named April Carlino is suing Universal Orlando Resort after she was allegedly “electrocuted” at Universal’s Volcano Bay Water Park over the summer.
Carlino says that she was a “business invitee” to the Volcano Bay park on June 2, 2019, when she was “electrocuted” by a “malfunction in defendant’s electrical system,” according to her lawsuit filed on November 19 of last year. Carlino states that Universal was negligent because the resort knew about the malfunction and failed to maintain safety, adequately train staff, or render aid after the incident. Carlino alleges that her unspecified injuries led to “disability, disfigurement, permanent and significant scarring, mental anguish, and loss of the capacity for the enjoyment of life.”
However, even though Carlino is suing Universal Orlando for over $15,000 and is requesting a jury trial, it’s unclear at this time if her allegations stack up against Universal Orlando’s previously published statements regarding the electrocution incident.
